Day 11 - "J"

It's J-Day and I'm going with a jingling silver bell.
I've kept my palette restricted to a combination of black and white alcohol markers and coloured pencils. I like the neutral tones combined with the brushed silver card stock, which I've embossed with an old folder I've had for many years. A double organza bow finishes my card nicely and adds a little more shine.

This is so pretty! It's very vintage looking and that embossing folder is great. I would use it for an argyle sweater look and never think to use it so elegantly.

I love your card Beccy, it is so pretty. I love jingle bells. Well as long as someone isn't constantly ringing them. Then they really take a tole on my nerves. Anyway, for the most part I really do like them.

Love the monochromatic look, Beccy, and your pretty and shimmery embossed background is the perfect backdrop for your image in white and greys. Thanks for always offering some inspiration words, especially for all of those non-native speakers out there. And it's also nice to be able to pick up a few new words, such as 'jonquil'. Never would have guessed it refers to a special species of daffodils. BTW, 'daffodil' is called 'narcis' in Dutch. I thought I'd return the favour LOL.

Oh, how beautiful this card is. This image, along with the silver background, is very elegant. I'm delighted. I remembered such a bell immediately. It reminds me of an Alpine cow that licked us and then chased us to the beat of the bell around its neck. We feared her and ran faster and faster. Such a bell hangs to this day and we always move it when we achieve some success. Amazing what memories your card evokes.

Gorgeous, Beccy! I love it in grayscale with all the shiny silver.

Teresa said...

I bet that is so pretty in real life. When I saw it, it reminded me that I had foil tape that I hadn't used yet. I pulled it out and will have a foil card soon.
